Sat 6 Aug: Comp Day 1
My Youth A first qualifier wasn't too hard and I topped out along with two others.
I found it hard to find a good sequence on the speed routes. Daniel Krippner and I have been consistently in the top two for Open Speed all year but this time I was coming third, Daniel fourth, and Masters competitor Rich Morgan was coming first. In Youth A I did better and was coming first.
In the Open qualification, I was close to topping the first climb, topped the second one and was second going into the final.
In isolation I could guess by the cheering that the guy before me had topped out. When I got to the end of the roof, I slipped off a big hold after making a difficult clip. The climber after me topped out and I came third.
Sun 7 Aug: Comp Day 2
On my Youth A second qualifier, I fell off on a big move and was third going into the final. On the final, I came second.
The Speed finals were on different routes to the qualifiers but the Open Male results stayed the same. In the Youth A I was Speed Champ.
